Tour de Parks “He Ate My Baloney!” Update

In March, I set a goal of walking one park in Northeast Ohio every weekend. It was my fitness goal for the Faithful Finish Lines program.

Well, it was a bust. I walked at one park, North Park, and developed a sinus infection. Then the weather was awful on weekends, and I caught my cubicle neighbor’s cold.

Oh well, time to leave the past behind and move forward with a new fitness goal for this 7 week Faithful Finish Lines round.

I am still doing the Tour de Parks. It is a great way to combine fitness and my love of photography. The tour also forces me to slow down and appreciate God’s creation.

Back To The Beginning 

I started Tour de Parks at North Park in Brunswick, OH and this is what it looked like:

It was upper 70’s or low 80’s on Saturday. Adults and children were walking the trail, playing on the playground and fishing. I over heard one child exclaim to his mom “He ate my baloney!” and his mother replied “He ate my baloney too!”

I never heard of using baloney as bait. Obviously, it did not work as the fish grabbed it and swam away. It is probably serenading other fishes in North Park with

My baloney has a first name, 

It’s O-s-c-a-r…

Who knows what I will overhear this weekend.

    What a fun conversation to hear! I have never heard of using baloney either. I’ll have to remember that as we often go to the park to look at the ducks/fish and yet don’t keep bread in the house due to wheat allergies. Thanks for sharing!

    I love it! Picture #2 is sooo much more delightful! Maybe God had a plan with the timing after all…
